We are pleased to announce the release of Open Distro for Elasticsearch 1.11.0. This release adds several new features including a new pipe-based query syntax, high cardinality data support for Anomaly Detection, fine-grained access control support for Alerting and Anomaly Detection, SQL window functions, custom scoring in k-NN, and a new notebook reporting feature. Open Distro for Elasticsearch 1.11.0 can be downloaded here.
Open Distro for Elasticsearch has extensive access control capabilities built right in. Of course, access control can prevent access to sensitive information, but it can also help you build applications that depend on Open Distro for Elasticsearch for search. Let’s explore this a little more.
While Open Distro for Elasticsearch is an open-source, community-led project, we are gaining another full-time person devoted to the project (me). Before I start contributing and interacting with the community, I wanted to take the time to introduce the role and myself.
